At the end of the 1st Quarter, HATE is still leading LOVE 7 – 0. Late in the 1st Quarter, John Canzano was busy moving the ball up and down the field, resulting in a defensive struggle leading to no points.
“He could have copied his chief rival’s playbook. Or changed his team’s primary color to ‘Lightning Orange.’ ” – Friday, August 24, 2007 – HATE
“Or, good grief, Mike Riley could have insisted the Oregon State marching band wear helmets this season.” – Friday, August 24, 2007 – HATE
“He could have emulated just about anything Oregon has done, even if it meant national ridicule, but none of it would have cost his program as much as what Riley’s planning to do.” – Friday, August 24, 2007 – HATE
“He’s forgetting the warning Ducks coach Mike Bellotti tried to give him while he bungled the Brady Leaf-Dennis Dixon platoon.” – Friday, August 24, 2007 – HATE
“And something about that feels absurd.” – Friday, August 24, 2007 – HATE (As if Mike Bellotti could offer Mike Riley any advice.)
“The Triple A franchise’s new owner, Merritt Paulson, will tell you that the team mascot — a fuzzy, friendly beaver named Boomer — often is accosted by Oregon fans who throw things at him and hurl insults, believing he’s the OSU mascot.” – Sunday, August 26, 2007 – HATE
“Canfield’s ready. You’re ready. I’m ready. I’m thinking Utah offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig , who was lucky enough not to be around to be blamed for the Las Vegas Bowl debacle, would secretly rather be playing against Oregon in the opener, though.”” – Tuesday, August 28, 2007 – HATE
HATE – 7
LOVE – 0
